"Breaking Out" is a song from Shock Treatment with lyrics by Richard O'Brien and Richard Hartley (who also made the musical arrangements) released in 1981 on the film album.

Several songs from the film were originally written for Rocky Horror Shows His Heels, a never-made sequel to The Rocky Horror Picture Show. The songs were rewritten for the never-made The Brad and Janet Show and once again for Shock Treatment. Some of these songs also appeared in the 2015 musical Shock Treatment: The Musical.

Lyrics

These lyrics are from the 1981 film "Shock Treatment":

Oscar Drill:
I know how it feels
To be cooling my heels
I've been down on them
Long enough
But if I take to them now
Then maybe somehow
You'll see through the bluff
I'm not playing it tough

Glish Davison, Brenda Drill y Frankie:
I've been a lifetime on deposit
And that's a long time in the closet

Oscar:
And if you say to me

Glish, Brenda y Frankie:
How was it?

Oscar:
It was hard taking
That heart breaking
God forsaken route
But I'm

Glish, Brenda & Frankie:
Buh buh buh buh buh buh

Oscar:
Breaking out!
Ooh!

You may say that you choose
To be in my shoes
But look what it
Did for me
I got buried alive
I don't thrive on that jive
Look and you'll see
That the spikes don't fit me

Glish Davison, Brenda Drill & Frankie:
I've been a lifetime on deposit
And that's a long time in the closet

Oscar:
And if you say to me

Glish, Brenda & Frankie:
How was it?

Oscar:
It was hard taking
That heart breaking
God forsaken route
But I'm

Glish, Brenda & Frankie:
Buh buh buh buh buh buh

Oscar:
Breaking out!

Glish, Brenda & Frankie:
Buh buh buh buh buh buh

Oscar:
Breaking out!

Glish, Brenda & Frankie:
Breaking out!

Oscar:
Breaking out!

Glish, Brenda & Frankie:
Breaking out!
Ooh!

Oscar Drill:
I know how it feels
To be cooling my heels
I've been down on them
Long enough
But if I take to them now
Then maybe somehow
You'll see through the bluff
I'm not playing it tough

I've been a lifetime on deposit
And that's a long time in the closet
And if you say to me 'How was it?'
It was hard taking that heart breaking
God forsaken route
But I'm b-b-b-breaking out

You may say that you choose
To be in my shoes
But look what it
Did for me
I got buried alive
I don't thrive on that jive
Look and you'll see
That the spikes don't fit me

Company:
We've been a lifetime on deposit
That's a long time in the closet
And if you say to us 'How was it?'
It was hard taking that heart breaking
God forsaken route
But we're b-b-b-breaking out
We're b-b-b-breaking out
